It's hard to believe that less than a month away on April 25th we will converge on Jefferson City to celebrate State Aviation Day for the 11th consequent year. That being said, maybe we should re-examine why we are the lead sponsor of this aviation event.

General aviation's annual economic impact on the state of Missouri is quite significant - $857 million. We have 123 public use general aviation airports and 54 airport repair stations, one or two of which may be in your home town. Members of the MPA are part of roughly 9200 pilots who own and fly over 3800 aircraft in the state. From a self-serving point of view we want to make sure that these aviation opportunities continue to be available for all who want to use them. What better way to insure their future than to meet on annual basis with the people who control their destinies - our legislators. Hence, State Aviation Day.

So make your appointments with the representatives and senators from your area and share your concerns with them. Make sure you go over the "Talking Points" that you picked up at the registration desk or printed from the list below and remember to invite your reps to have lunch with you.

The buffet luncheon is served on the third floor of the Capitol Building Rotunda between 11:30 and 1 p.m. The food is served in the southwest alcove while tables and chairs are set up in the southeast alcove.

Transportation will be available from the airport if you are flying in, thanks to the management of the Jefferson City Flying Service and MoDot.
